GWA Staff & Community News – Autumn 2023

Community News:

It has been a busy few months with some great local causes and community events that we are always pleased to support.

We were proud to support Berwick Food & Beer Festival and the Berwick Amateur Rowing Club’s Trade 4s competition at the end of August. We also supported Glendale Show, Holm Show and the British Horse Society’s Blair Castle International Horse Trials.

Two members of our Berwick office team ran the Great North Run in September.

In October we supported the annual Berwick Literary Festival. We are once again the main sponsor of the Berwick Christmas Loyalty Scheme, which is managed by the Chamber of Trade. This runs through to the end of the year.

In the run up to Christmas all three of our offices are “drop off points” for the Mission Christmas Cash for Kids campaign.

Through our own Staff Community Outreach Initiative, we have supported:

Berwick Darts League nominated by Andrew Blair

North Northumberland Hospice nominated by Lesley Clark

Tweedmouth Tigers After School Club nominated by Joanne Rodger

Berwick WI nominated by Anna Spowart

Staff News:

We have recently welcomed a few new faces into the GWA offices. William Cleland joins us as a new Associate, Tom Deans joins our Wealth team and Matthew McBryan takes up the role of Head of Strategic Projects and Chief of Staff. Tom Opelt and Ben Sanderson have both joined our Tax team.
Partner, Alan Patterson is approaching 50 years of service and Derek Simpson celebrates 42 years with the firm and is one of the top three longest serving colleagues. Well done and thank you for all your years of service
